SHRM Blog Executive Book Club: July 2015

first_imgCulture Savvy: Working and Collaborating Across the GlobeGlobalization is a business reality. As companies try to succeed in the international arena, the question of culture, learned behaviors, and implicit (mis-)understandings are part of the formula. Typical “Culture 101” training consists of a list of do’s and don’ts that tend to reinforce negative stereotypes—and increase anxiety about overseas collaboration. This book presents a new approach that addresses culture directly and is based on research from the field of neuroscience. Recognizing why we may feel anxiety and discomfort in different cultures helps us overcome those feelings. This book focuses on what every human values, the four Rs—respect, relationships, recognition, and reward.To visit the SHRM Store, please click here.last_img read more

Yahoo! Announces Distributed Computing Academic Program

first_imgRelated Posts josh catone 1 Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Yahoo!, who has been a key contributor to open source distributed computing framework Hadoop, today announced an academic research partership with Carnegie Mellon University that will give students access to Hadoop and other open source tools running in a supercomputing-class data center. The data center, named M45 after the Pleiades star cluster, is a 4,000-processor cluster supercomputer with 3 terabytes of memory and 1.5 petabytes of diskspace. Yahoo! claims that the M45 cluster is one of the top 50 fastest supercomputers in the world, capable of performing at 27 teraflops.According to Yahoo!, universities have not had access to the type of hardware and software infrastructure necessary for web-scale distributed computing research. Yahoo! intends for Carnegie Mellon to be first school in a broader academic research partnership program. CMU and Yahoo! also plan to hold a Hadoop Summit in the first half of 2008, to which they say they would invite major Hadoop users such as Facebook and the University of California at Berkeley.“Yahoo! is dedicated to working with leading universities to solve some of the most critical computing challenges facing our industry,” said Ron Brachman, vice president and head of Yahoo! academic relations in a press release. “Launching this program and M45 is a significant milestone in creating a global, collaborative research community working to advance the new sciences of the Internet.”The search and portal company is following in the footsteps of rival, Google, who along with IBM announced in October that it was building a 1,600 processor data center that would be used to help teach cloud computing concepts to students at six American universities.center_img A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#news#web last_img read more

Notes from IGT2009 Cloud Summit

first_imgI’ve attended IGT2009 Cloud Summit last week. There were 50 speakers, few panels and several workshops.    Ric Telford from IBM has made an interesting note about Cloud Scale Economics, which supports our findings regarding higher TCO with external cloud (see my previous post). He has mentioned that even if an Enterprise is somewhat less efficient than the cloud provider, the comparison is still made of its own internal cost with their price, which includes provider’s interest. If our compute capacity is comparable to the cloud vendor’s one, and we are efficient enough – we may always prefer internal infrastructure to the external one.    Still, appearance of such public cloud solutions, such as Amazon Web Services and others, with clear price model, certainly becomes great benchmark for the internal IT shops in various companies, and results in increased focus on internal efficiency.    Other talks from Sun, NYSE, Amazon, Microsoft and many others were also interesting. I liked the statement made by Liam Lynch, eBay Chief Security Strategist:  “Cloud is overhyped in the short term,  but is under hyped in the long term”.     Another interesting idea was a comparison of commonly used platforms of today (Windows/Linux/…), with the ones of tomorrow (MS Azure/AWS/GoogleApps). Who is going to be the dominant one?Do you think cloud concepts’ proliferation will change our life in 10 years?  How?Till the next post,    Gregory Touretskylast_img read more

Green factor explains disappearance of bigticket promises in BC budget James

first_imgVICTORIA – British Columbia’s three-member Green party was a factor behind the absence of big-ticket election promises in the minority NDP government’s first budget update, Finance Minister Carole James says.James said universal child care and a comprehensive housing strategy will anchor her next budget in February, but not before a period of consultation with the Greens, interest groups and organizations.The NDP and Greens reached an agreement to combine their seat totals in the 87-seat legislature to defeat the Liberals in a non-confidence vote after B.C.’s spring election did not produce a clear winner. The agreement also sees the Greens support the NDP minority in confidence votes in the legislature.The NDP’s election promises included a $10-a-day child care program for families struggling to find affordable, accessible, quality daycare. The party also pledged to offer renters annual rebate cheques of $400 to offset high rents in much of the province.Green Leader Andrew Weaver said the Greens support free daycare for families of children under age three and will suggest universal child care should not be stuck on the $10 number highlighted during the election campaign.“Our position was why $10? Why not $15. Why not free?”Weaver said his party also believes the $400 renter rebate could be spread more widely to help people in need.“We share the same value that we need to give renters a break,” he said, suggesting that giving a rebate to all renters and creating the bureaucracy to deliver it may not be the best way to go.Weaver said he was thrilled the promised child care and renter rebate programs were not detailed in the NDP’s first budget update on Monday.However, social policy groups, including the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, said they were concerned James did not deliver the child care plan in the budget update, which forecast a surplus of $246 million and economic growth of 2.9 per cent“By February’s budget you’ll certainly have an indication of the plan,” James said. “Both of those need discussions before we come to February and a full year’s budget. The Greens are part of that discussion and part of that consultation.”Weaver said the absence of details on rent rebates and $10-a-day child care in the budget update indicates “a softening of some of their promises.”“We’re not forcing our platform on them,” Weaver said of upcoming talks on the issues with the NDP. “They’re not forcing their platform on us. It shows how a minority government can work.”James’s budget update also promised to hire 3,500 teachers and build thousands of rental units and homes for the homeless.And the government will increase B.C.’s $30-per-tonne carbon tax by an annual $5 per tonne on April 1, 2018.The hike is intended to ensure the province’s carbon tax reaches the federal government’s goal of $50 a tonne a year before its 2022 deadline for a set carbon price agreement across Canada, James said.She also said the carbon tax will no longer be required to be revenue neutral and the expected $1.2 billion in revenues this year will fund government programs rather than tax measures.last_img read more
